Trapped between the curtains and glass
you can feel remorse for this honey bee,
earlier he did nothing but glance and pass
at no time was there a sign he’d hurt thee.
Funny how something the size of an acorn
can bring a grown man to his knees,
it’s really nothing more than a flying thorn,
you could pinch it in a tissue with ease.
Sure, if you’re allergic it could kill you
but the same could also go for a peanut,
leave him alone if you don’t want him to,
maybe next time you’ll keep the damn door shut.
So don’t kill the lil’ guy who’s just buzzing by
and happened to admire your flowers,
all because you’re embarrassed by how,
you’ve been screaming and flailing for hours.
